The left channel on my HK AVR 8000 seems to have bit the bullet, being about 6-7 db lower then all other channels. This was one of my original HT purchases, and I way overspent for a receiver. The best part about this old beast is its true amp section, capable of handling 4 ohm loads easily. I need this capability, but I'm wondering if I can get it for what I'm trying to spend ($600)? This is what I'm looking at
Harman Kardon AVR 3600
The Onkyo and Yamaha clearly show 4ohm for front speakers on the back panel, I need this for my LCR. I'm a little nervous about Onkyo, there seems to be some QC issues. I'm leaning toward the Yamaha, but I'm hoping some of you guys can comment that have actually used these various receivers.
Speakers are DIY with a steady 4 ohm load.
